Cannot increase the screen resolution

displaygraphics cardintel graphicsresolution

I am trying to install my new monitor but my Graphics Adapter (Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family) does not offer a resolution of 1920×1080 in the [Display Properties > Settings] window. It only offers up to 1360×768.

Can anyone explain to me how I can increase this number to the correct resolution.
The monitor does show my the windows desktop, albeit at a lower resolution which is being stretched to fill the screen, making it look very blurry.

I have installed the "Monitor Drivers" I found on the disk supplied with new monitor, but these do not appear to have made any difference.

The Intel software that comes with the graphics card has an information window containing lots of info about the card and the monitor itself. I have placed this on a webpage so you can examine it if helpful.

Many thanks with your help in getting my Christmas present to work!


P.S.: Before I got this screen I checked to see if my graphics card could cope with such a large screen.

This is I am afraid a truly weird issue. SONY appear to have disabled 1920x1080 on my graphics card. However, by following these instructions I have been able to achieve 1919x1080, which is good enough. The text is sharp and I can't notice any aberrations. I thoroughly recommend the instructions on this site.
